Jammu: Tassaduq Hussain Mufti, brother of chief minister Mehbooba Mufti, and Chadoora MLA Javaid Mustafa Mir on Thursday took oath as ministers in the Jammu and Kashmir cabinet.

Governor N N Vohra administered the oath of office and secrecy to the legislators at Raj Bhavan.

A noted cinematographer, Tassaduq Mufti joined the PDP at a function organized to commemorate his father Mufti Mohammed Sayeed's first death anniversary on January 7.
